I know that methadone can cause nodding. I am way beyond that stage of MMT though. I can admit that at certain points I was a horrible patient! I used everything under the sun to supplement getting high. I've been on doses of 345mgs, 230mgs, Split doses, Liquid, & Tablets. I've been on the dose I'm at now which is a split dose & the lowest dose I have been on, for well over 1 year. I have had clean drug tests I don't use any illegal drugs, I don't drink.
